In Topic: Goya Product Surprise

30 September 2014 - 05:26 AM

After emailing both the woman I spoke to and the company again, I finally got a response:

Thank you for sending in your email and for your kind words. I am glad I was able to help you at the Gluten Free/Allergen Free Expo Sept 6 &7th.

As to the Goya Low sodium canned beans, Look for these 7 low sodium canned beans with the following imprints on the can:
ITEM# LOW SODIUM CANNED BEANS IMPRINT CODE
2330 Red Kidney LOW SODIUM NLSLRSB 15.5oz can
2331 Pink beans LOW SODIUM N LSPKM 15.5oz can
2332 Black Beans LOW SODIUM NLSTBSM 15.5oz can
2333 ChickPea Beans LOW SODIUM N LSPTO 15.5oz can
2334 Pinto beans LOW SODIUM N LSSWM 15.5oz can
2335 sml White Beans LOW SODIUM N LSSWM 15.5oz can
2345 Drk Red Kidney beans LOW SODIUM N LSDRKN 15.5oz can

These products are produced in Angola, NY which is a gluten free facility. Plus they have done testing on the products which have come back gluten free as to FDA specifications. The letter ā€œNā€ stands for Angola.
That will help assure they are gluten free.
It was nice meeting you . I wish you much good health and happiness.
Regards,
Meriterese

In Topic: Wondering If I Have Celiac

25 September 2014 - 08:25 PM

It sounds like you have several symptoms of Celiac Disease. But I tell people that you never can know if you have Celiac unless you get the test done. Definitely ask your doctor about it. 

 

It's also important for you to know that it is NOT in your head. Normal people don't suffer in this way. 

 

Everyone on the board is very supportive and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. :)

 

Best of luck!

I love all of the donation ideas!

 

We are agreed, no sharing plastic.

 

Is there a definite answer out there for ceramic? 

 

 

Side note, even though it's been three years, I've decided to change out my old plastic measuring cups/spoons. Even if they were never heated and had few scratches, I figure why not? $7 for stainless steal and peace of mind :)

Thanks for replying. I myself had gotten all new plastic everything except for my measuring cups and measuring spoons, which are now only used for gluten-free. I think I figured that they were ok because they were never heated or had scratches on them. I wonder if I should have replaced them.... Thoughts?

I actually went to a sponsored event recently where someone from a large gluten-free company said that she uses plastic spoons for cooking gluten-free and regular foods. :-/

Thoughts on ceramic in general?

I just read an article that states it is surprisingly accurate for testing trace amounts of gluten. I have no idea how this type of technology works, but if this is true, I am quite excited about it!
